KOAN

Who is looking out the window?

Who is hearing the catbird
composing a song
among the apple blossoms?

Blue iris in the garden.
On the window sill,
blue iris in a glass vase.

Yellow from the rising sun
slides down yellow trees
and illuminates the grass.

Who is drinking black coffee
from a warm black cup
while watching the falling rain?

Who is asking the question?
